Nancy Wadel Obituary

In loving memory of Nancy Wadel, who peacefully joined her Lord on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, in Missouri. Born Nancy Lou Jackson on May 14, 1944, in Bangor, Michigan, she was the cherished daughter of Irene Smith Buyce who was later adopted by her stepfather, Edwin Buyce.

Nancy dedicated her professional life to housing development programs in both Ohio and Michigan, where her compassionate spirit shone as a project manager. She took pride in overseeing the purchase and transformation of homes for low-income families, leaving a lasting impact on those she served.

Family was at the heart of Nancy's world, and she was a devoted mother to six children. While mourning the loss of her infant sons—Jeff, Charlie, Scott, and Chip—who bravely battled Barth Syndrome, Nancy leaves behind enduring memories with her surviving children, Warren (Gail) Wadel and Monica Wadel.

Nancy's legacy extends to her four grandchildren, Andrea Wadel Binns, Christopher Weller, Matthew Wadel, and Corey Wadel, as well as her five great-grandchildren, all of whom she cherished dearly.

In the embrace of eternal peace, Nancy reunites with her parents, children and her grandson, Christopher Weller, who also faced the challenges of Barth Syndrome. Christopher passed away in February 2023.  

A private family service will be held to celebrate Nancy's life, and in lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Barth Syndrome Foundation ( in her honor.

Nancy's memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her, and her compassionate spirit will continue to inspire for generations to come.
